Today I am going to do the first part of one of my things.
My teammates and I were stretching at the gym.
After a few minutes Toulane leaned forward and said
“I see your tutor is here. Do you need her to tutor you in gymnastics too?”
I looked up into the stands where Josie was watching. She had come along to watch me practice.
At the word friends Toulane’s expression turned stormy. She got up and walked away. I called after her.
“What’s your problem?”
“Okay time out!” Couch Isabelle said “Everyone come sit down for a moment.”
I sat by Sierra and as far away from Toulane as I could.
“I have noticed some tension between some of the teammates.” Isabelle said. I knew she meant me and Toulane but I couldn’t meet her eyes. “Does anyone have any team building ideas?”
“There is a horseback riding center around here.” I suggested “We could volunteer there.” I risked a glance at Toulane but she didn’t shoot down my idea.
“Good idea Mckenna.” Isabelle praised “I will have to look into that.”
Then we went off to practice our gymnastics.
